About

A pair of 1980s American polished brass wall lights designed by Warren Platner. Elegant set of brass wall-mounted lamps designed and manufactured Warren Platner in USA in 1981. The sconces gives a beautiful light and shadow play on the wall when lighted. Brass and lacquered metal form the individual leaves, which are layered downwards. Warren Platner is today considered an icon of modern architecture and design. In his career his paths crossed with many well-known companions. Among others, he worked for the famous designer Raymond Loewy and I.M. Pei, who in return was inspired by the German architect Mies van der Rohe. From 1960-1965, Platner was part of Eero Saarinen's development team, including the conception of projects for Dulles International Airport in Washington, Yale University and Lincoln Center. During this time he also worked on his own furniture designs, which were finally produced by Knoll International.
